One of the great natural wonders of Albany , Dog Rock is conveniently located on the footpath of Middleton Rd Albany right next to the shops. It takes all of 3 minutes to stop the car and have the kids photo taken in front of a very large boulder that looks like a Labradors head baying at the moon. Worth... More

Yes it's a rock, but it fills us with pleasant memories of our holidays with our young children. We have been coming to Albany for over 30 years, many of those over the Christmas holidays with our young family.

While you're around the town centre you don't want to miss the opportunity to visit the dog rock. Looks like a hound! Take a some photos for memories.

This was really just a 5 minute stop to snap some pics of us our dog with Dog Rock in the background. But very cool nonetheless.

Drove around the corner and could not believe my eyes. Had to go around the block so the navigator could have a look ! A later visit to the supermarket without the caravan and photos were taken of this marvelous nature feature. the Black and white collar is a hit. A must see when in Albany.
